Trey Johnson enters his second season as a graduate assistant for the Tulane offense.
Johnson, the son of Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson, returned to college football after playing three seasons as a receiver at the University of Memphis from 2009-11. He redshirted the 2008 campaign and then played in 31 games with 11 starts over the next three years before several injuries halted his collegiate career.
During his time on the gridiron at Memphis, he owned career receiving numbers of 40 receptions for 485 yards (12.1 avg.) and had returned 39 kickoffs for 778 yards (19.9 avg.) and registered 11 punt returns for 23 yards. His best season was in 2011 when he played in just seven games but ranked second on the team in all-purpose yards (664).
A native of Miami, Fla., Johnson, 24, received his bachelor’s degree in leadership organization from Memphis in 2012.
